We had what is now and forever will be referred to as the: Halloween snow of 2020.
I think I heard it was about 3 or 4 inches which really isn’t very much for these parts.
But it wasn’t predicted....and it was still October!
I woke Saturday morning to a big, beautiful full moon shining through my bedroom window.
It blanketed the bedcovers with moonlight and Tucker (our cat) and I quietly got up to watch it sink down over the rooftops of the little town we live in.
I made some coffee and after a half a cup, noticed that the sun was rising bright and orange over the harbour so I pulled on all of my warmest clothing and walked down the road to take some pictures.
The ramps to the docks are up at the town landing. Only the boatyard dock is still in use. You can see the lobster traps stacked for when the boats comes in with their hauls.
Marblehead Light is across the harbour on “the neck.”
It looks like it could be December and not Halloween.
It felt like it too and it wasn’t long before I felt the cold seeping in and turned toward home.
I woke early on Sunday morning and glanced out of my bedroom window to see the full moon passing through an opening in the heavy cloud cover. I grabbed my phone and waited for the next opening in the clouds.
It was so beautiful and perfectly timed - just like a gift.
Every year one of the homes in my neighborhood builds a fantastical Halloween creation.
This year they built King Kong. His face moves and he has teeth that show when he growls!
They are very talented!
